A chat over tea about things feminine, romantic, and pretty...and most importantly about being thankful to God for His many blessings.

By Special Request
You go through life and meet people who you wish you really had never met. Then you meet people who, when you look back, you are just so glad that you got to know them. One such person was a delightful lady who purchased a perfume bottle from me last spring. She was so kind. Then she wrote back saying that she had some of her mother's jewelry that she would never wear...and could I put some of the pieces on perfume bottles for her and some of her relatives? I admit to being nervous breaking apart these precious memories of her mother, but then again, she and I were working together trying to repurpose these pieces into a new way for her and her family members to remember her mother. Much time (and prayer!) went into these bottles. I included this lady in every decision with plenty of pictures and emails back and forth. The bottles were finished and last week arrived at their destination. I shall miss our emailing back and forth but am truly glad for the chance I had to get to know her. Such fun it all was! It is a great honor to help carry on these precious memories in the lives of this lady and her family. I don't know if you will ever read this, but thank you so much, Mary. You are a kind and generous person, and I'm sure your family members will appreciate your creativity and thoughtfulness. I'm so glad to have gotten to know you.
The Bible says one must 1) admit they are a sinner (Romans 3:23); 2) realize there is a payment for sin (Romans 6:23); 3) believe that the payment was made by Jesus with His death on the cross, burial, and resurrection (Romans 5:8); 4) be willing to repent of your sins and turn to God (Acts 17:30); and 5) in prayer, humbly ask the Lord Jesus Christ to by your Lord and Saviour (Romans 10: 9, 13). It is that simple!
